Lola is a Slutty Name
Lola for President? No, probably not.
Lola is a name with the connotation of excessively seductive. From theater, to music, to cartoons, Lola seems to be a bit slutty. So, why would I make a page on this topic? Do I have a problem with the name Lola? Has one Lola tainted me against all Lolas?
No. I have no problem with the name Lola. I kind of like it. I don't even know any Lolas. But I do think that Lola evokes the image of a vamp, and I am a little concerned with all the babies being named Lola. Why put that on a kid? I think Lola is more of a name to take on. If your personality is Lola, then use it as your nickname, stage name, pen name. If you NEED to name your kid Lola, make it a middle name - so if their personality is Lola they can use it - if not they can make it 'L'.
Do you really think there will be a President Lola? Secretary of State Lola? etc.

Lola Montez: Slutty Lola Pioneer
(February 17, 1821 - January 17, 1861)
Lola Montez was an Irish-born dancer and actress who became famous as an exotic dancer, courtesan and the mistress of King Ludwig I of Bavaria.
Historian Michael Cannon says "In September 1855 she performed her erotic Spider Dance at the Theatre Royal in Melbourne, raising her skirts so high that the audience could see she wore no underclothing at all. Next day the Argus thundered that her performance was 'utterly subversive to all ideas of public morality'. Respectable families ceased to attend the theatre, which began to show heavy losses." (Melbourne After the Gold Rush, p.313-4).
